The threads here seem to start with a focus, and when the issue is resolved, it often spins off into another direction of good conversation. Not always a bad thing since the conversation can continue and the OP can just stop watching if need. Where other sites discourage that, which doesn't make sense cause you really don't need to start a new topic for every conversation shift. But I digress.
It is better that things get forked than continue in the original thread if they diverge too far. Otherwise, it makes it impossible to tag and find later.
One thing that makes ML special compared to other communities is exactly that. Problem solved, but the discussion may go on often talking about other aspects that are somehow related to the OPs question. @JaredBusch is right, this is a problem due to (additional) content not being tagged and therefore hard to find in the future. On the other hand, I think that this is what drives the community.
The kind people of the @Mods group started to fork threads lately when there is an interesting discussion that may be good to keep around, correctly tagged.
